two more ideas from Left Forum:

- Utopia is valuable not as an ultimate goal but as a sort of horizon: moving towards Utopia can be progress even if you'll never make it there.

- It's important to be honest about the economic realities of social movements. For example - there have been a number of communes in the U.S. that were basically successful and self-sustaining, but many of these communities wouldn't have been able to exist at all if not for a few community members with rich parents or some other access to lots of money. If a commune can't exist but for someone's rich parents, then it's not really economically viable.
